I make my own Distress, pigment and chalk inks.

Black Inks- I use Tsukineko Versafine Onyx Black for my line art.

Tsukineko Memento Tuxedo Black for my alcohol inks. I don't like it though. I think the color is an off gray. A personal pet peeve. The ink pad is excellent though and well made. I wish they had a deeper black.

Staz-On Black for my stamping that is not for paper like acetate.

Tsukineko Brilliance Graphite Black for vellum stamping.

I also love the Studio G inks. The only problem with Studio G are no refills. I make my own batches of reinkers and refill the ink pads.

I mainly use my brush tip markers to color my stamps. I also paint with my reinkers. I am not a big alcohol marker user. I mainly use my markers for illustration work and not stamping.
How do you make your own reinkers??
